Syria´s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry: Some States’ Support to Terrorism in Syria Contradicts with Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Resolutions
In a letter sent to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and the Chairman of the UN Security Council on the support provided by some states to terrorist attacks on the Syrian territories, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry stressed on Thursday that this support contradicts with the UN Security Council resolutions related to combating terrorism and proves double standards that will reflect negatively on some states that offer support to terrorism and the world states at large.
The Ministry said that Syria calls on the Security Council to exert pressure on the states that offer support to terrorism in Syria to stop their support according to the Security Council resolutions, stressing commitment to the plan of UN Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan and welcoming the results of Geneva meeting.
The Ministry added that the truth of events in Syria is becoming clearer continuously, pointing out that the pressure exerted on Syria by the US, France, Britain and Turkey show the hidden goals against Syria and its people’s achievements.
The Ministry said that in spite of the misinformation campaigns launched against Syria, the obvious truth is that the goal is changing the balances in the region and subjecting its states to western hegemony.
The Ministry mentioned the recent decision taken by the US administration few days ago allowing the US Treasury Department to offer financial support to the so-called ‘Free Syrian Army’ which is composed of armed terrorist groups that commit crimes against thousands of innocent civilians in Syria.
It added that the role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the state of Qatar and Turkey in financing and arming the terrorist groups is obvious to everyone as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, whose country is chairing the Security Council, said at a press conference on July 29, 2012 that Saudi and Qatar are offering financial and military support to the terrorist groups.
The Ministry pointed out that those who call for holding Security Council meetings are the ones who caused the catastrophe in Aleppo through supporting terrorism and arming the terrorist groups depending essentially on the role of the Turkish Government which opened its airports and borders to terrorists from al-Qaeda, Salafis and Jihadists and offered them all facilitations to send them to Syria.
The Ministry said that Turkey also established headquarters for military operations to manage the terrorist attacks against citizens in Syria in Aleppo and other Syrian cities, adding that these headquarters are operated by the Saudi, Qatari, Israeli and US intelligence agencies.
